Cameron Hughes Lot 171 Sonoma Meritage 2008
Deep red with a violet hue. Aromas of bright bing cherries and dark chocolate occupy the nose. Super approachable on the palate, bright fruit, and silky texture are supported by well-integrated oak. Predominantly Merlot, this wine shows a balanced tannic structure and a silky mouthfeel, start to finish.
Nice cherry and oak notes. Simple yet smooth on the palate, not overly tannic as wines in this price range can be. It's hard to go wrong on a Cal Meritage at this price. A bargain at Costco - under 10 bucks. Clean, restrained, simple and approachable.
Great wine, but over $40 seems a little steep when the Grocery Outlet is selling it for $4.
